Home-Made Nutri-Grain Bars

Mason really likes Nutri-Grain bars for breakfast. So I thought that they seemed easy enough to make.  This was not true.

I used the recipe found here.

I would recommend reducing the juice by half.  Also, get the bottom layer as thin as possible to make this more like Nutri-Grain bars than a baked dish.  I failed with this, which is why the top is so sparse.  Apple butter worked really well. I didn’t have an 8×12 pan or whatever it called for, but a 9×9 worked just fine.

I also attempted to modify the recipe slightly and make my own filling with peach and raspberries smashed up.  This failed.  The filling was too watery, so there wasn’t a “jelly filling” like in a Nutri-Grain bar.

In the end, Mason chose a Pop-Tart for snack.  Fail.
